Baby Lesh: 16 Weeks


How i'm feeling: It's all starting to feel "real" now.  With a swelling tummy and the excitement of learning the gender (and name) later this week, I am more and more excited about it all.  We are still so happy and feel extremely blessed to be pregnant.

How far along: 16 weeks

Size of the baby: About the size of an avocado (4.5 inches)

Total Weight Gain/loss: Just caught up to my pre-pregnancy weight (after first trimester morning sickness). It's rushing right to my breasts and belly button.

Maternity Clothes: None yet - some high waisted work slacks aren't very comfy though. 

Gender: We find out Thursday!! So excited - I love seeing & hearing every one's guesses :)

Movement: Not yet - but I lay very still at night before bed just in case.

Sleep: I wake up really early with a mind full of thoughts and often I can't go back to sleep. I have a feeling this probably won't get better as things progress.

What I miss: Taking hot baths!

Cravings: No cravings - mostly food aversions. The only thing that always sounds good to me is fruit.

Symptoms: I get a little queasy at night still and my energy levels are lacking as well. But... I'll take it!! I know lots of ladies who are terribly sick all pregnancy and I feel pretty lucky.

Best moment this week: Finally starting to see a baby bump, knowing the baby can hear our voices now, and the anticipation of finding out the gender on Thursday!!

Hope you're having a wonderful start to your week!
